Our new city of Tucker is located in DeKalb County, Georgia, United States. The population was 26,532 at the 2000 Census. It was originally settled in the 1820s, and later developed as a railroad community in 1892. Tucker, also known as "Main Street Tucker", is now officially a city. Tucker is now the second largest city in DeKalb County after Dunwoody (excluding Atlanta which is mostly in Fulton County). 
The community has maintained a distinctive identity, centered on its public high school, churches, and locally owned and operated businesses such as the Cofer Brothers building supply business, Matthews' Cafeteria, and the Tucker Federal savings and loan association (although the latter institution was merged into RBC Centura). It also has been designated with its own ZIP code of 30084.

Outdoor events held on Main Street are a central part of the community for numerous residents and organizations. The Tucker Day celebration, first held in the 1950s, is an annual event typically including a parade, that runs the length of Main Street with food vendors, artist, musicians, and merchants. Other annual events on Main Street include the Taste of Tucker and Tucker Chili Cook-Off. The street is also closed for the Tucker Cruise-In held monthly between April and September. The Farmers Market on Main Street occupies a similar seasonal schedule, though weekly.

The Tucker Civic Association, Friends of Henderson Park, Friends of the Tucker Nature Preserve, Friends of Kelley C. Cofer Park, and neighborhood groups regularly organize park and roadside cleanup efforts. The Tucker Historical Society hosts the annual Brownings Courthouse Day and the annual Garden Tour.

The Tucker High School varsity football team, the Tucker Tigers, is a large seasonal draw for former and current Tucker alumni and residents.
